Ducati 900SS Special


For Sale in Pennsylvania USA - a wolf in Sheep's clothing making 100hp rather than the standard 70hp which would surprise a few people when out and about



This is a one owner Ducati 900SS I purchased new in the spring of 1994. Over the years all work and regular maintenance was done by either Fast By Ferracci, Koups Ducati, or Art Corsetti of Blue Mt. Cycles. In 1999 the motor was built into a 944 at Fast By Ferracci by Phil Seiberlich who was Eraldo's right hand man and mechanic during FBF's WSB and AMA campaigns. While there a few other "trick bits" were added. The motor is essentially a rolling showcase of what FBF could do to Supersports at the time while still keeping the bike streetable. I still have most of the OEM parts and they will go with the bike. Over the years a lot has been done so I'm sure I'm forgetting something, feel free to contact me for more details of it's history etc.

I have invested over $20K (including the price of the bike) in maintenance, parts, performance upgrades, labor etc. Price is $8,999
